Job Description

Krekow Jennings is a high-end general contractor celebrating 41 years in business. At KJ, we build art that people live in and around and are considered one of the most creative builders in the Seattle area. We view ourselves as craftsmen and our team members work with some of the highest quality finishes and subcontractors in the industry. Check out our portfolio at .


Our busy firm is currently recruiting for "bags-on" Foremen to grow their career while working on exciting and unique projects (mostly residential). Qualified candidates not only have the skills required to perform the work, they have a great attitude, eye for detail and are committed to working efficiently and safe.


As a Foreman at KJ, you will be responsible for overseeing and performing work. Our Foremen are involved in problem solving and quality control. Being a clear and timely communicator (verbal and written) is essential in this role. You will review and implement safety plans, run site meetings, participate in owner and architect meetings, and coordinate with the project team regarding projected completion times, changes in scope and staying within budget restrictions.


Qualified candidates will have a thorough understanding of residential construction procedures including concrete, structural steel, site work, and interior and exterior finishes. Layout experience and the ability to understand architectural, structural, civil, mechanical and electrical drawings is required. Experience with high-end custom homes is a plus.


Candidates should have their own hand tools and be fully trained in power tool usage, industry standards and be able to perform carpentry duties as necessary. This role coordinates its work with other trades and supervises the work of subcontractors as well as KJ carpenters and contract labor.

Foreman candidates come from many backgrounds. Currently, you may be running your own high-end, residential GC company and wearing all the hats: sourcing clients, overseeing subs and performing much of the work yourself. Or, you may be working as a Lead Carpenter or Foreman for another company and have a desire to learn from the best while growing your career. Or, you may just want to work on the most interesting projects of your career.


Are you ready to work for an employer where you will have great benefits while doing the work you love and having a home/work life balance? At Krekow Jennings, we offer competitive compensation, excellent health (medical, dental, vision) benefits, paid time off (sick, personal, vacation, holidays), 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan with company match, and a great working environment.


Next Steps: Interested candidates should submit their updated resume and let us know (briefly) why you would be a great fit for this position at Krekow Jennings. If currently living outside of the greater Seattle area, please let us know what your plans are to relocate.
